The Contractor (1973)
This play (like “The Changing Room”) has intrigued critics in London because of its deceptive, unique dramatic method. Storey constructs the play around the setting up and taking down of a tent for a wedding. Clive Barnes (N.Y. Times) wrote: “ exerts the same fascination that makes passers-by stop in the street to watch construction workers this is a very funny play.”
